Fujitsu to restructure semi house

Keywords:Fujitsu  LSI  45nm 

Fujitsu Ltd has succumbed to restructuring, making plans to reorganise its LSI business divisions and eventually forming a new subsidiary. The company also made public that the development and mass-production prototyping of its advanced process technologies will move to a new site.

Even before Fujitsu's announcement, reports circulated about the company's plans to spin-off its semiconductor business in a bid to reduce operating expenses.

New initiatives
Fujitsu eyes the formation of a new chip subsidiary in March. Meanwhile, its advanced processes and product efforts for 90nm and beyond, which are now currently being handled by the Akiruno Technology Center (Akiruno TC) in western Tokyo, will be transferred to the company's 300mm plant in Mie. Transfer of manufacturing equipment to the Mie plant is scheduled for March. 45nm generation process technology development is currently being shifted to the Mie plant, which is expected to be completed within the 1H of FY2008 (April-September).

Leveraging this consolidation, Fujitsu will strive to accelerate development of process technologies for 45nm-generation and beyond.
